The University of Mary Washington Leadership Awards were established in 2001 to highlight those students, student organizations, staff, and faculty who have provided leadership and contributed outstanding service through involvement in activities and organizations. The Leadership Awards are an opportunity for the University community to recognize those students who have made extraordinary contributions to the campus and greater community.  This year’s ceremony has been expanded to include the senior convocation program recognizing our graduating seniors, and the alumni and service awards previously presented at convocation.  To better capture the spirit of this expanded program we’ve renamed it the Eagle Awards.


Any member of the student body, faculty and staff can nominate deserving students or organizations.  Students only can nominate a faculty or staff member for the Giving Tree Award.  Individuals may not nominate themselves; however, they can nominate an organization they are in. Review the list of awards (provided above) to determine which one you wish to nominate an individual, organization or program for and then select and complete the appropriate nomination form in OrgSync.  Follow the directions on the form for required information and submission procedures.

NOTE: The Alumni, Kiwanis and BLS awards are selected via separate process.

Individuals and organizations may be nominated in multiple categories although they will only be recognized in one.  Students may be nominated for individual awards and as part of an organization and may be recognized in both.  Award winners as well as all nominees in each category will be recognized at the Eagle Awards ceremony.
